The force sensors are the sensors that are used to measure the force between the two surfaces. These sensors are majorly used for converting the applied pressure into the equivalent value of electric current. Force sensors can be easily integrated into force measurement application as it is ultra-thin sensors. Force sensors are known to be force sensing sensor, when the external pressure, force or mechanical stress is applied the resistance fluctuates. The force sensors are extensively used in many applications across various industries including Medical and Pharmaceutical, robotics, manufacturing, automotive and many others. The force sensors are used in various industrial applications particularly in the process industries and manufacturing industries. It is utilized in traffic engineering such as process monitoring, medical science, rail monitoring, process control, and biomechanics and also used for testing purposes.
Increasing adoption and application of force sensors in the construction, industrial and manufacturing are the factors boosting the growth of the force sensor market. Additionally, rising demand for force sensors in the medical and robotics sensors is the factor flourishing the market growth. Furthermore, low manufacturing cost, high reliability, and accuracy are the factors driving the market during the forecast period. Moreover, the factor curbing the market growth is due to rigid in construction. However, ongoing development and innovation in the sensor technology are the opportunity to fuel the market growth during the forecast period.
Force Sensor market is segmented into types such as tension force, compression force, and both. In this market tension force and compression force are expected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period. Transducers are present in this sensor to measure tension and compression forces. Furthermore, if the application is to measure small forces they are used in the miniature design. These are mainly three types - load cells with internal or external threads, flat-sized force transducers, and S-type force sensors. Typical applications for these sensor types are for material testing machines, rope or elastic force measurement, and others.
